June 24 - June 30:
Tuesday: 3.5 mi @ 10:58 on the treadmill in the morning. This felt way too hard for what it was.
Thursday: 4.7 mi @ 10:51 on the treadmill. Followed by an actual strength session (aka I didn’t bail and used heavy weights!). Felt good to knock out a tough workout on a week night.
Friday: 60 min slow flow yoga when I got home from work. This was a Yogadownload podcast and really hit the spot. Some longer, strength-oriented holds, but lots of stretching and not so vigorous that I worked up a sweat. Perfect for a Friday night!
Saturday: Around 5.6 mi outside, but I don’t have any specific data!! Ughh. My stupid NEWish Garmin never picked up the satellites, wtf. I was really annoyed to be slogging out in the heat for over an hour but not have any real data!

Sunday: 3.3 mi @ 10:36 on the treadmill. Followed by another strength session--this one was split into some heavy weights at the gym, followed by interval/body weight exercises with Dan when I got home.
Weekly mileage: 17.1 miles
June mileage: 60.8 miles. Not bad!
July 1 - July 7:
Tuesday: 3.5 mi @ 10:55 on the treadmill in the morning. Followed by a strength session with heavy weights. At night, Dan and I did a quickie body weight strength workout!
Wednesday: 30 minute "lunar flow" yoga before bed, aka guided stretching/rolling around on the ground.
Thursday: 4.7 mi @ 10:47 on the treadmill.
Friday: 3.3 mi @ 10:28 on the treadmill. Followed by a strength session--split between gym and at home with Dan! We did a Crossfit-style "AMRAP" of 5 push ups, 5 crunches, 5 squats for three minutes.
Saturday: 45 minute hip-opening flow yoga at home. This was a pleasantly tough podcast!
Sunday: 5.8 mi OUTSIDE. At a frustratingly slow pace for me currently: 11:27. It was 81* when I left and 90* when I got back. Shocker, avoiding the heat/running indoors is not making me better at running outdoors in the heat. Bleh.
Weekly mileage; 17.3 miles.
On one hand, I need to GTFOff the treadmill and get outside. On the other, doing this will inevitably make me hate running with a fiery passion and make me want to skip all my runs, ever, for the rest of the summer. So I am just going to try to get outside once or twice a week, to make sure I can still run hills etc., but not stress out too much about general suckery or pace or losing running fitness. In theory.
